Celtic dreaming of Cup Final

Bloemfontein Celtic dreaming of Cup Final after win over Orlando Pirates

Posted: 5 November 2012 Time: 8:34 am

Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen says his team "never gave up" in their comeback win against Orlando Pirates on Sunday.

Phunya Sele Sele made a dramatic comeback in their Telkom Knockout quarter-final at Free State Stadium yesterday - being 3-1 down with a minute to play, they scored two goals and bounced back to beat Pirates in a penalty shoot-out.

"I am very happy about the result; my players showed a lot of commitment and great character to beat Pirates yesterday," Larsen says.

"Normally when teams trail with only 10 minutes to go they give up, but it was the opposite for my players and they were duly rewarded for their hard work."

Larsen believes his squad is starting to come together this season, despite their recent 2-1 League loss to University of Pretoria.

"I think my team is starting to gel now," he says. "Even though we lost against AmaTuks in a League game recently, I believe we played well. The team is coming together, but I will not put pressure on my players. We'll take one game at a time."

Celtic have joined Mamelodi Sundowns, SuperSport United and Free State Stars in the Telkom Knockout semis. The draw takes place in Johannesburg today.

Roger De Sar will say this statement after the match
"But we were poor, our passing was poor, our commitment, the way we started the game was very bad. We got better in the second half and it's something that we spoke about the whole week, about being too complacent.

Baminyile FC or Kaizer Sminya Minya are really having it hard, they must minya for their team and then minya for Pirates which will be a long route because Bucs is going straight to the final.

Khune was dubbed to be a serial time waster and costed us a win against M.UNITED and yet their hero JALI did the same with a minute to go and got punished, i guess u were busy concentrating on KHUNE rather than giving ur players such advise and yes we drew and u lost twice to CELTICS...so called galaxy of cows!!!

Penalty FC did not win through penalties this tima around like they did with carling black label chibuku cup. The refree did not receive his brown envelope before the game and thats the reason they cud not make it on penalties.

no excuses about complacency here...CELTICS played well and never gave up and GORILLAS were no where to be found, pity CLINTON made a mistake by putting MOGOROSI; MOTSHEGWA & MANZINI on the bench so he can introduce them later to kill GORILLAS but it didnt go well as he conceeded two quick goals making it 3-1...but those boys proved once again that they are the heart of SIWELELE, like i said b4 MOGOROSI make JALI and the rest of GORILLAS' defence look like sissies!!!!
